General Education AssessmentCCBC’s General Education Program introduces students to a variety of disciplines that build a common foundation of knowledge that promotes responsibility, critical thinking, and lifelong independent learning.
General Education courses prepare students to meet the personal, academic and career challenges of today and tomorrow as empowered citizens of a global society.
The General Education Review Board
(GERB) has designed a comprehensive assessment plan that includes internal measures that assess CCBC's stated General Education Outcomes using faculty designed assessments termed Common Graded Assignments (CGAs).
Faculty teams known as General Education Assessment Teams (GrEATs) collaboratively design assessments which are assigned to all sections of a course and serve to assess the proficiency of students on CCBC’s stated General Education Outcomes. Assignments are evaluated by faculty and statistically analyzed on a regular cycle. Faculty then use these results to implement various strategies in the classroom to further develop student outcomes in a system of continuous improvement.
